Field to Be Named in Honor of Coach Britt

Field to Be Named in Honor of Coach Britt Photo
The Board of Education unanimously voted to approve the renaming of its football field to The Colbert J. Britt, Jr. Memorial Field at the July 11 meeting. The Board took the naming under consideration after receiving a petition from the community with more than 1,100 signatures.

A lifelong and respected member of the community, Mr. Britt cared deeply about the youth of Malverne/Lakeview. He was hired in 1972 as a physical education teacher at Howard T. Herber Middle School and remained there until his retirement on June 30, 2005. Mr. Britt coached many junior varsity and varsity teams during his time in the district and continued coaching for an additional ten years after his formal retirement. He served as a role model to students and was respected for his leadership abilities and determination in ensuring that all of his athletes succeeded both on and off the field.

Some of his most notable achievements include earning the 1990 Varsity Football Rutgers Cup Championship as well as training with 1996 Olympic Gold Medalist Derrick Adkins. He was responsible for beginning the Friendship Games, an annual track and field event, and was a charter member of the Lakeview Youth Federation.

Coach Colbert J. Britt died on Dec. 27, 2015. He is survived by his wife, Norma Britt, and their daughter Alma.

The dedication ceremony of the football field will be held on Saturday, Oct. 14 as part of the district’s homecoming festivities. All MHS alumni and members of the entire community are invited, and encouraged, to attend this momentous occasion.

Malverne High School was given the 2017 Award of Excellence by the New York State Public High School Athletic Association. The award is presented to schools that have developed proactive approaches in keeping sportsmanship at the forefront for their students, coaches, spectators and communities, as well as to schools that are promoting positive sportsmanship within their athletic department. Malverne instills the NYSPHSAA Code of Conduct with all of its student-athletes.

“It is not surprising that we have earned this honor, as we hold our athletes to the highest standard of sportsmanship,” district athletic director Micheal Pelan said.

Congratulations to each of the Malverne athletes, their coaches and their families who are the true recipients of this award.

As part of a morning orientation program, parents and families of incoming third-graders to Davison Avenue were welcomed by incoming Principal Rachel Gross and given an overview of what to expect in their first year at Davison. While parents were receiving this important information, the incoming third-graders toured the building and sat in with a current third-grade class. At the conclusion of the program, each of the students left with a special Davison Avenue backpack, which contained a notebook, crayons and pencils for the fall.

Gate Closure at HS

Due to ongoing construction work at the High School stadium, it has become necessary to lock the Clinton Avenue gate. For your safety, the gate will be closed as of Thursday, June 8. The other gates will remain open. We will notify everyone as soon as we know when the gate will be reopened. Please plan your access to the high school campus accordingly.
